TAI Modern is pleased to announce its participation in the 29th edition of Art Miami. This year’s fair will be held at the former Miami Herald site at One Herald Plaza, on 14th Street between the Venetian and MacArthur Causeways. Art Miami opens with a VIP preview on Tuesday, December 4th, and runs through Sunday, December 9th. TAI Modern will be exhibiting recent works by Japanese sculptors in bamboo and other media, as well as paintings and new media works by contemporary American artists.
As the premier gallery for contemporary Japanese bamboo art for over 20 years, TAI Modern will exhibit works by noteworthy bamboo artists including Honma Hideaki, Morigami Jin, and Living National Treasure Fujinuma Noboru, who each have highly contemporary approaches to this traditional art form. These artists have work in major American museum collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Art Institute of Chicago, and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.
TAI Modern will also feature works by contemporary American painter Monique van Genderen and new media artist Jason Salavon. Reflecting a natural attraction to popular culture and the day-to-day, Salavon’s work regularly incorporates the use of common references and source material; the final compositions are exhibited as art objects, such as photographic prints and video installations, while others exist in a real-time software context. Monique van Genderen’s compositions create a painterly language that is concerned with surface, finish, and continued interventions within the subject of painting.
